    Definitely not complete.
    I've seen some scary stuff done with shapers. Guilty of some of them too.:o

    Insulated the walls, raised the ceiling, and leveled the floor. I still haven't done any of those things. It would have been really easy 25 years ago. Now, not so easy. :eek:

    Another vote for Whiteside and Amana. I have a Freud cabinet set, and it's very nice also. Not cheap by any means.

    I have seen that some manufacturers are now making insert head router bits, as...

    Joe
    I don't know that I agree with "lame", but it is "antiquated". it's definitely not a video for use in a production environment.
    It was the concept of using a tail stop, or back stop, to...

    Jon

    If you're certain that you won't need to lift things heavier than the 500-600lbs you stated, look at electric, pendant rope hoists, and not electric, pendant chain hoists. The price will drop...

    If It is, It's done really well.
    Someone put some time, work, and effort,into that. If it was closer, and I had more room, I'd consider going up and getting it.

    Go to the 19 minute mark of this video. Don't let the title put you off. I've been using a shaper for a long time, and still find this video valuable.
    I've used the same concept to do much larger...

    Pretty cool looking. Someone definitely had a need they couldn't afford at the time it was built.
    I like the attention to detail, ingenuity, and craftsmanship of the project.

    Dan
    I truly feel for you, and have been going through the same kind of stuff with my house for the past year or so. Every project I do, or repair I make turns into a giant pain in the behind...

    12/3 SOOW cord would be just fine. It's just an extension cord.
    No, you won't see any performance degradation with just 10' of extension.
    You may want to consider just buying 15'-20' and go...

    Thomas.

    That is basically the same planer Powermatic has been selling for 25 years or more. There's nothing exotic about it, other than the helical head. Parts are readily available, but I doubt...

    John

    I would say for the above reasons you stated and cost.
    Cast iron is relatively cheap compared to the grades of aluminum you have experience with.

    Uhmmm,,, pretty easy.
    I have a 20+ year old Jet, which has the same fence as the Powermatic, and I haven't seen that fence in probably 20 years. I also haven't had a fence on my bandsaw for at...

    Kevin

    I have used acetone with success, when working with epoxies, for a long time now. 30+ years. That's how we cleaned it up in the boat yard.
    I don't wait for the epoxy to cure, just start to...

    Adam
    I am not familiar with that model, but for $70.00, it's kinda hard to see how you could go wrong.
    I think resaw is probably very limited.

    The benefit to epoxy is longer open/working time,and less clamping pressure. With traditional PVA's you need a lot of clamping pressure. With epoxy you only need enough to bring the joint together in...

    I do not own a SawStop, so I have no horse in this race.

    Without seeing the actual circuit boards, I will make some assumptions.
    If they are well designed, the life of the board, barring...

    No, there is no compelling reason not to buy used, as long as you have a little mechanical inclination and patience. If you buy a 14" Delta, or one of it's clones, there is no shortage of parts...

    Air friction losses and differential pressure drop across the actual hose itself.
    If you were to put a gauge at both ends of an air hose, you would see that they both have the same pressure...

    See if you can find a "vintage", US made, Delta/Rockwell, 14" band saw. With, or without, a riser block.
    Virtually every manufacturer of band saws has copied the design of the Delta, 14".
